Sandra Kluge is a Tap Percussionist born in Bremen (Germany,) based in Brooklyn (NY), and performing and teaching internationally. She writes, records, and performs her own original music, in which Tap is the exclusive percussive instrument, both solo and with a band. Sandra is deconstructing the classic Tap vocabulary in order to be a full band member, rather than just the cherry on top. Her performance highlights include Thomas Marek's show NOLA, the Tap Dance Days festival, Swiss Tap Days, Düsseldorf Photo Weekend, Symphony Space, LaGuardia PAC, Judson Church, Piano's, The Duke on 42nd St, Basilica Hudson, and many more. Her work has been featured on the Tap Love Tour Podcast, German Tap Magazine, Dance Advantage, Dance Writer Australia, and Vocalo Radio. Sandra is the only Tap Percussionist to be an alumna of the Art Omi Music Fellowship Program and has received a commission from the International Contemporary Ensemble to create a new collaborative work in 2022/23.
